Well?

Well!

EDIT: I Just checked using "Webcite" and the "infomation" in the "Most Downloaded Items" chart is the same that appeared on the 2nd of this month. So, yes, it hasn't changed in some weeks.

Also the Spotlight Item never changes. Still the same old Thanksgiving cartoon. Come on, Thanksgiving was 2 months ago! Personally I never took much notice in the most downloaded files anyway. Just looks like the IA group got tired of maintaining the site. My opinion..

I don't know if the site is even recording DLs any more. All of the "Most downloaded" in my collection are "0" downloads for this week. Some of the stuff that has been added there (WB Bloopers, etc) have been DL'd pretty consistantly since they have been on the archive.

As to the online thing, I think I read somewhere that the system used to count an online play as a DL.

Someone asked why the most downloaded items thing doesn't change - Ever since IA built in a player so you don't HAVE to download, does it count 'viewings' or just fully downloaded files?

Might this be the reason it rarely changes?
Just out of curiosity do most you download or view from the player window within your browser?

Cheers...

I posted this before and it seems you didn't read it (though it was a reply to a post made by you):


No, No, NO! I Commented that the numbers and titles on the chart have been the same for several weeks. For example, it has had "A Gun For Christmas" at the top since at least the 2nd of this month (the number of downloads, 289, is also the same number of downloads it said on the 2nd - For the record I had the page archived on that date). You honestly expect me to believe extactly 289 people have have download the same item each week for 4 weeks?

Compare the current chart with the copy here:

It's on the right-hand side of the screen.

Guess there is a problem with the counters...

Still, do most of you watch in the video window in the item page or download most of the time? (Just curious)

PS: I just checked and while you replied to my post, I was reposting it further up as I think I had it out of place

Sorry....take a chill pill. It's all good...

So who do we write about counters?
There must be someone handling the servers on IA?

As for your question: I usually stream, Unless I can tell by the thumbnails that I might use the video later (there are restrictions placed by my Internet provider that means if I have a chance of wanting to download it later, I'll just download it and not stream it at all). In some cases I might stream a video, and decide to download it at a later date (such as for YouTube). If there is an error and the file won't stream when I want to view it, then I'll download it and view it on my computer.
